[FFFest Preview - The Octopus Project]
With ACL done and finished, Austinites are finding themselves rolling up their sleeves yet again as another tract of park is set to be reclaimed in the sweet and holy name of music. Featured here on Both Sides everyday until the weekend of the fest itself will be one artist from the Fun Fun Fun roster.

Today's Feature:
The Octopus Project [Day 1, Stage 4 - 4:00-4:45]

"M-m-m-music is is is is..."

Around these days it seems like people are just slapping their work with the label of "instrumental" in an effort to justify their wordless noise or songs with failed lyrics, just like how we, back in high school, kept calling the crappiest of our work "abstract." But then you stumble onto an outfit like The Octopus Project, a true professional, and realize, despite those label-slappers, all is still well with instrumental music, and there are people out there who still care about what they're doing. The Octopus Project don't just go about crashing cymbals or pushing keys, they intricately compose their pieces to perfection, and they'll scream, "HOT SINNERS!" themselves if they have to - everything just goes together in the end. In what's a very welcome late addition to the Fun Fun Fun roster, Octopus Project are set to take stage 4 on Day 1.
